520    This publication presents articles on Aging-in-Place, 
       Assistive Technology, Monitoring and Telehealth, 
       Transportation and Mobility, and Design. The section on 
       assistive technology (AT) represents arguably the most 
       mature and generic aspect of technology and aging; except 
       that AT can hardly be regarded really as a specific 
       discipline any longer. Assistive devices and systems 
       command an expansive gamut of technological and 
       engineering specialties, drawing upon mechanical 
       engineering and industrial design at one end of the field 
       and cybernetic systems engineering and brain-computer user
       interfaces at the other. The largest section in the book, 
       on monitoring and telehealth, reveals novel applications 
       of advanced pattern recognition techniques, some of which 
       have, up to now, found roles primarily in the military, 
       process engineering, and financial sectors. Transportation
       and mobility still represents by far the largest and most 
       commercially lucrative market segment of technology for 
       seniors. There is however a clear trend towards synthesis 
       of information and communication technologies (ICT) and 
       mobility technologies, which is embodied in the latest 
       developments of automatic collision avoidance and full or 
       semi-autonomous navigation functions in powered mobility 
       devices. The last section is dedicated to design issues. 
       It is proposed that designing for the special needs market
       before making a design as inclusive as possible to the 
       mainstream market is a viable alternative to the currently
       accepted notion of inclusive design, provided that 
       aesthetics are appropriately addressed. To conclude, we 
       see a social shift from institutional to home-based care, 
       in which information communication technology based 
       solutions now afford the possibility of aging-in-place for
       the many thousands of people having mild to moderate 
       cognitive impairment
